Serendipity Star Table Runner
Being a member of the American Quilting Society, I receive their magazine which is called American Quilter. I love looking through it since it always has some interesting news and patterns. This month, I saw Serendipity Star by Marjorie Rhine and knew I just had to make it!
I chose these 3 fabrics. I bought a bunch of scraps from Bits N Pieces in Pelham, NH when they had their big summer sale. I stuffed a bag with fabric and it cost all of $5! These pieces were in that bag.
I had to cut 3 rectangles from the two fabrics I chose for the star. I had to layer the 2 different fabrics right sides together. I had to sew the long edges and then cute into my sewn rectangles.
After my cutting, I was left with 4 equilateral triangles and 2 vertically seamed diamonds per pair of rectangle fabrics. That's it! I couldn't believe how quick this was coming together!
I sewed one triangle to either side of the diamonds. I ended up with 6 diamonds.
After sewing the diamonds together, I sewed the border strips to 3 alternate diamond units.
I added border strips to the 3 remaining units. Ta-da! It's done! I made it one afternoon. It measures about 37" by 32". It's on the large size. I just love it! So nice to work on a quick project!
